Directx 8 problem with ddraw.lib

Recommended Posts

I recently got the Directx 8 sdk. I am trying to use Directdraw7, but for some reason when I try to compile I get this error: c:\MSSDK\LIB\ddraw.lib : fatal error LNK1106: invalid file or disk full: cannot seek to 0x389bc793 I have the directx 8 sdk on 3 different cds, and all 3 ddraw.lib files give me the same error. I use MSVC++ 5.0. I know for a fact that the Directx 7 sdk, I previously installed worked, and I didn''t change anything except install the new version. Do I have to include a new file or library?

i am taiwanese, so my english no good, i use DirectX 7.0

you can see Direct8 SDK dxreadme.txt
you must update your Visual C/C++.


Miscellaneous Issues:

- Some samples will compile with errors with the UNICODE flag defined.
- Visual C/C++ 5 compatibility in DirectX 8.0 depends on Service Pack 3
for Visual Studio 97. If you see the following errors:
"fatal error LNK1106: invalid file or disk full: cannot seek to 0x389bc8bf"
"Internal error during Pass1"
then you need to upgrade your Visual C/C++ 5 installation. Service packs
for Visual Studio can be found at http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/sp/vs97.
